What kind of Team needs a Partnering Day?
If you view your working relationship with internal and external suppliers as a ‘partnership’ and recognise that there is significant interdependence on achieving success within a project or a contract, then all parties could probably benefit from an investment in a Partnering Day.
What happens on a Partnering Day?
Our clients often tell us that experiencing their partnering day was not only incredibly useful but also great fun. We will help you create an environment where you can feel at ease and able to tackle the most difficult of issues.
The day will help you understand where your team will succeed together, as well as identifying any blockages that may reduce the team's effectiveness. The Team may be within your company or in a project where external organisations are also involved. We will help you to look in detail at the challenges and strengths within the group and facilitate discussions that will enable your Team to genuinely work together towards one goal. We will help you identify how your personal behaviour can be a major factor towards success or lack of success for the wider group.
What does a Partnering Day achieve?
We will spend time with you prior to the event to understand the objectives of the event and participants. In general, our clients are looking for our assistance in bringing together disparate parts of an organisation or working group who are involved in a major project. The partnering day enables the Team to agree common objectives in a way that would be difficult or even impossible in a boardroom environment. Your team will leave the partnering day with a common understanding that has been agreed by all parties. Some organisations have developed their common understanding into a documented “Partnering Charter” which is signed by each participant. Others have simply kept it as a group of behaviours and beliefs that are understood by everyone involved.
